We saw Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons at this small and intimate venue with it's revolving stage. We loved the Melody Tent. The seats and view were terrific, Frankie Valli, the Four Seasons and their band were great.

Went to see Frankie Valli-totally awesome show. We totally enjoyed the show and the great electric current that the crowd had. Mr. Valli did not disappoint!! Can't wait to see him again-maybe next year. Seats were great altho we were unlucky enough to have a beautiful but large couple-at least 6 feet tall-sit directly in front of us. Still, because...

Just saw the Frankie Valli concert at the Melody Tent in Hyannis. First on the venue which is under a tent with a rotating stage with 20 rows of seating 8 sections surrounding the stage, thus not a bad seat in the house, The Melody Tent has free parking and offers beer, wine, champaigne and other concession standard treats.

I had been to the tent on and off for years and this was the most disappointing concert we have ever been to. We had second row seats in the C section, which should have allowed us a good view. The people in the first row stood up directly in front of us and blocked our view of the stage.... More

Hello, So sorry that your experience was disappointing and those in front of you were so rude. We invite patrons to speak to ushers as well as the box office staff if they are unhappy with their seats or having issues, though security should have done more to assist you as well. Generally, we ask patrons to remain seated throughout... More

We recently went and saw Heart in concert at this venue. First of all, there is NOT a bad seat in the entire tent. The stage rotates, so each person in the audience can see the performer from all angles. The sound was very good, too. Overall I would recommend this venue to see a musical guest, or a comedienne,...

We love the revolving stage as we used to frequent the same years ago in CT. There is no bad seat in the house unless you have screamers screaming right in to your ears all during the concert . We finally left towards the end of the concert and watched from the back. We left at the end and when... More

Because this place is so small , every show is intimate and you are never far away from the stage. I've gone to many shows, and enjoyed them all. You can leave your seat to have a beverage outside the tent and still hear the music. There is good traffic control. Sometimes the acoustics are not the best for loud... More

While it is great to have a venue on Cape Cod that can book once-famous acts, it still suffers from a solidly mediocre sound system. I understand that volume is limited somewhat by nearby housing, but the crowd noise so often overshadows the band, you might think you were in Shea stadium to hear the Beatles in the 1960s.

We went to a Chris Botti concert here and loved the smaller venue. The artist was involved with the audience and the whole event was more personal, yet with spectacular sound. Every seat is a good one. If we lived closer we would buy season tickets.
